Update on last weekend's Operation Blitz activity

Operation Blitz commenced on Friday 6th April, our PCSO’s were out on foot patrol and around 7.10pm came across a number of youths at the skate park, we took the time to talk to the local youths and everything was in order. Shortly after we spoke to some more youths outside Tesco, who enlightened us about some stretching techniques that he was using for his catering profession. Our Officers then commenced to checking the Railway land in which no one was present. Then, Lewes Cemetery was checked and then St Mary’s, again no one was seen.


Our Officers then came across a potential individual driving under the influence, he was uncooperative and erratic. Our officers managed to get the males number plate registration before the male sped off, these details have then been passed on to our response team. Later in the evening our Officers proceeded to George V playing field where it was all quiet (minus a few wide eyes rabbits), they then went back to Lewes Skate Park and again the Cemetery where no one was present and Blitz ended for Friday.


Blitz kicked off on Saturday with two of our PCSO’s conducting a spot of traffic control as the three way traffic lights were all stuck on red near the Landport estate in Lewes. After a couple of hours of waving traffic through like cabin crew Op Blitz got underway. It was a rainy evening and in all very quiet.

At around 8.45pm Castle Banks was checked, all was calm at Lewes castle, no disturbances….or any invading marauders! Our PCSO’s then checked Railway Land. The wet and muddy conditions had definitely deterred any groups from gathering as it was nothing but wet footsteps and the occasional spooky shadow! It was then time to move on to Barn Rise Underpass, Seaford, and the light shower of rain definitely helped to keep things quiet. Youths had been recently gathering in the underpass here but not tonight as our brilliant PCSO’s and the rain drops were out in force! Next it was on to Greys abandoned School in Newhaven, which was thankfully still abandoned and there were no disturbances there. Finally, the last stop was to Denton Road, previous incidents have involved youths riding motorcycles with no helmets on this road. Thankfully, it was a quiet end to an Operation Bltiz. There were no calls made to the Blitz phone on either evening.
